We are a local, third-generation monumental masonry company that has been serving our local communities in Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire for over three decades.
From our family to yours
Situated in the heart of Wimborne Minster, our family-run stonemasonry has been supporting generations of families by creating everlasting memories that celebrate the lives of their loved ones.
With one of the largest displays of memorial designs and stone types in Dorset, we have over 50 memorials on display in our Wimborne Minster showroom. We pride ourselves on our friendly, caring and considerate service, and at Minster Stone Memorials, we welcome you to come in and browse without pressure or obligation.
At Minster Stone Memorials, we know that choosing a personal memorial to aptly commemorate your loved one and celebrate their life can be a daunting and difficult time. That’s why we are built on integrity, empathy and excellence, above all else. We provide a comprehensive customer service that is both simple and tailored as well as caring and compassionate.
We want to make every person feel supported when they call, email or visit our showroom. During an in-person visit, you can see our 50-plus selection of memorials and materials. You can also have a one-on-one consultation with a member of our specialist memorial team, who will support you with selecting your memorial and answer any questions you may have.
We are a family-run team with years of expertise in arranging the ideal memorial for your loved one. We are here to guide you along the path your monument will take, from the quarry to the cemetery, providing comprehensive information and assistance every step of the way. We can handle the necessary permit applications on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry about time-consuming administration or contacting several people to arrange the placement of your loved one’s memorial.
We offer bespoke memorial designs that are made to order and personalised to reflect your loved one and their life.
We adopt the time-honoured tradition of using long-standing stonemasonry techniques coupled with contemporary technology to craft each and every memorial. We choose the highest quality materials from around the world, and hand-finish and install each of our memorials to ensure the greatest level of excellence and accuracy.
